I started cosplaying in 2007, after seeing some of my friends at the time cosplay to a local event! My first few costumes were online bought, but as of 2009/10, I started to make my own. My very first handmade costume was Refia, followed by Hatsune Miku, which despite thinking it was brilliant at the time, is actually awful! But I suppose that's just how we learn and improve?
I've been attending conventions/events since 2009 and enjoy both conventions and expos.
